The policy was worth every penny. The hip medication that I was able to afford because I had the insurance gave him a couple extra years of active life.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Premier Pet Insurance worth it?

    Different from more basic policies, Premier Pet Insurance includes, in addition, cover for illness and other benefits, such as accidental death and lost and found ads.

    This makes it a good option for those looking for an affordable and comprehensive option.

  • What is the difference between Premier and Premier Plus Pet Insurance?

    Premier and Premier Plus Pet Insurance offer similar benefits, however the Premier covers vet fees for a limited time of 12 months counting from the day the injury or illness first occur and considering that the premium is paid. On the other hand, Premier Plus Pet Insurance with Lifetime cover can refund you for vet treatments incurred throughout a lifetime of your pet or as long as the policy is active.

  • Does Premier Pet Insurance cover existing conditions?

    Premier Pet Insurance only covers conditions that develop during the policy period, so pre-existing conditions are excluded. For this reason, it is highly beneficial to get Premier cover as soon as possible to guarantee you will have vet fees covered within policy period.
